Tasty Tuesday


               I've been loading up on new recipes for Valentines Day, and chocolate seems to be the way to go! I came upon this cookbook "Adventures with Chocolate" that had impressive photos, the kind that look real enough to eat, but since it was a library book, I better not lick the pages, not during flu season anyway! But I  did copy down some recipes to try, beginning with these yummy chocolate biscuits! Now, I've shared a recipe for chocolate gravy, many years ago, so if your in dire need of a chocolate fix, make these biscuits and smother them with chocolate gravy, I'd give it a go!

2 c. flour
4 ts. b. powder
1/2 t. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 c. shortening
3/4 c. milk
2 Tbsp. coco powder

Sift the dry ingredients together, cut in shortening . Add milk and mix well. Transport to a lightly floured board and pat to 1/2 in thickness. Cut out biscuits and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 400 oven for 15 min. Cool.

      It's all about the day of love ahead and nothing says " I love you" like a home cooked, heart felt planned meal with some thing chocolate for dessert, but with recipe, you can begin the day with chocolate! Why not?

I've never heard of chocolate biscuits, but they sound yummy! A perfect Valentine's Day breakfast--just to get us started on the chocolate we'll be having the rest of the day, LOL!
